sel – You might contact the American Cancer Society for information. Checks might be difficult to get. One pancreatic cancer charity you might consider was set up last year by the wife of the actor/dancer Patrick Swayze. Its contact information for a possible contribution is:

“Stanford University is coalescing existing research activities on pancreas cancer to form a Pancreas Cancer Center. This center will expedite application of emerging technologies and the development of molecular targeted therapies all focused on pancreas cancer.
Checks should be made out to:
“Patrick Swayze Pancreas Cancer Research Fund”
& sent to:
The Patrick Swayze Pancreas Cancer Research Fund
Stanford Cancer Center
Development Office
2700 Sand Hill Road
Menlo Park
CA 94025
U.S.A.
650-234-0651 (phone)
650-234-0644 (fax)

    My condolences, my mom passed of it.. it is horrible , i know
    I like the info Norton has given , but i would check it out completely before sending money, also
    There are also doctors curing cancer , like the ones in suzanne somers book Knockout… and i would not just throw my money at what ever big pharma is funding… without really researching what they are doing…. it is a lot of waste ,it seems to me
    and has nothing to do with curing anything… if people would just ask them…. they are NOT claiming to be looking for a cure in many cases, but people dont even ask before they send money
    It took me a long time to get over seeing this horrible illness kill someone… and you may need an extra boost yourself…. if so , there is a free basic healing method called EFT being given out by gary craig, its founder … the manual is downloadable and free…;It will only be at his site until jan 15th because he is retiring then and shutting down the site, I was so grateful to come across this and to try it on all my left over pain…. and it works really well and quickly , i use it on everything, now…… and i hope you check it out… i am sure he wants you to be happy, and it is very difficult to overcome this kind of experience… i know it is horrible….
    so here is your free gift from gary…
    and enjoy what time you have left yourself… i am sure he would want that, too
    Happy Holidays, anyway
    I think planting trees is nice , too
    Have some fun somehow

    I am so sorry. My mom died from it and it is a horrific experience for everyone. I have two suggestions. Try PANCAN (pancan.org) or the Lustgarten Foundation (lustgarten.org). Both of these are wonderful pc charities and give the vast majority of their monies to pc research. Please hang in there. I was one of the early members od PANCAN and it has grown. The purple ribbon is our symbol and November is national Pancreatioc Cancer Awareness Month. You will be amazed at the info on the site. Take care..
